§ SIR JOHN LENG (Dundee)
To ask the Financial Secretary to the War Office if he will give the numbers of pensioners who served in the Crimean campaign and the Indian Mutiny, stating the rates per day and the number receiving each rate.
(Answered by Lord Stanley.) The number of men drawing special campaign pensions is as follows:—2,800 at 9d; 280 at 10d.; and 221 at 1s. There are also a number of men who received special increases of pension, and whose pensions are now as follows: 79 at 1s.; 170 at 1s. 3d.; 626 at 1s. 6d.; and 44 at 2s. Among the ordinary pensioners are also a large number of men who served in the Crimean campaign and Indian Mutiny. As a list of these would involve an examination of each individual case it is impossible to sanction its preparation.
